I had my ALO interview yesterday. It was nice to finally meet my ALO. We talked a little bit about the Air Force and USAFA and SS, then moved on to the actual interview. This is really for candidates that haven't had their interview yet, I thought I could help out. First off, most of the questions I prepared for weren't asked. Things like 'how would you handle a sexual harassment situation?' or 'how do you feel about religious intolerance?'. Most of the questions were AF scenarios. One he asked me was 'You're an F-15 pilot, and you and your wingman are flying at night and you see tracer rounds coming at you. You call for authorization to engage and destroy. There is no response. Your wingman wants to engage. What do you do?' He also asked me if I thought senior NCOs should have higher pay than incoming Lieutenants from USAFA or OTS, or AFROTC. I thought it was a strange question. Took me a little time to think about it. When I left, I thought I could have done better. A few things he said stuck in my mind. He said 'We don't look to qualify the interested, we interest the qualified.' And at the end of the interview, he said, 'don't be down if things don't work out, don't give up. There's always a means to an end.' That concerned me a bit. And maybe I'm reading too much into this, but it seems like he may be telling me that I might not get in this year. He has 15 other applicants, and for one Michigan ALO, that's a lot. What are your opinions about this? Should I be concerned or am I looking at it wrong?
